40+ Years of Success

Founded in 1981, C.R. International Inc. began as a small engineering company providing communications and data processing equipment to federal customers. Equipment ranged from protocol adapters to special purpose radio/telephone interface devices, and federal contracts included engineering services in the areas of secure voice/data, fiber optics and portable communications equipment.

When the need for automated assembly equipment became apparent in the mid-1980s, CRI moved to a larger facility and invested in capital equipment to provide customers with more efficient production manufacturing. As a result of the increased manufacturing capabilities, CRI was able to secure business opportunities in the private sector as well, providing “Build to Print” assembly and engineering services for large telecommunications companies.

Over the years, CRI has established a successful track record by providing technological solutions for complex challenges. Today, with diversity built into our revenue base, CRI is a modern and financially strong technology partner.
